Umm side note – have you been to Coquitlam Centre lately? Fall and Winter fashion and footwear is SERIOUSLY on sale.
Ok, back to the topic at hand, this season’s staple is an over-the-knee (or a thigh-high depending on your height) boot.
Wear them with mini skirts or oversized sweater dresses or, over tight-fitting denim. When wearing with skirts and dresses, make sure to show little bit of leg (even if it’s just an inch), this will help to make your legs look even longer. If you’re worried about looking too sexy wear them with something oversized or loose-fitting on top (I love a good mini skirt, OTK boots and oversized sweater combo). Or, if you’re feeling super fashiony, wear them with a calf-length dress.
Luckily for us, OTK boots come in a variety of toe and heel styles (including flat, block and stiletto) which makes finding your perfect pair all that much easier.
Here are just a few of my favourites (it was so hard to pick) all available at Coquitlam Centre. See a pair you like? Hurry in before they sell out!!
Stretch Thigh-High Boots
These ultra-chic skin-tight, thigh-high boots feature a pointy toe, a 3.25" block heel and a 22" shaft.
Available at Le Chateau $129.95* (visit store for sale price)
Maroco Thigh-High Suede Boots
Wear these almond-toed beauties over denim, with a skirt (like our 'Girl in Focus' Aly Armstrong) or a sweater dress. They also come in navy blue and black if grey-beige isn't your thing. These ones feature a slightly shorter shaft height of only 19.75"and a 4" heel.
Available at Aldo $220* (visit store for sale price)
Agrelidia Over-the-Knee Boots
Yes, your eyes don't deceive - these OTK boots are VELVET! With an easy to walk in 2.25" block heel and a 22.75" shaft, these OTK boots are definitely at the top of my list this season.
Available at Call it Spring $99.99*
Adessi Over-the-Knee Boots
These tight-fitting, micro-suede boots with tie-detail fit like a glove and feature extra elastic at the top to keep the boots up where they belong. A sensible 2.75" block heel and 21.75" shaft make these boots a perfect choice for any girl-about-town.
Available at Aldo $140* (visit store for sale price)
Legivia Over-the-Knee Boots
While I'm not personally a huge fan of flat boots with dresses/skirts - these boots are perfect with jeans. Featuring an almond-toe and an impressive 24.25" shaft height (tall girls - I got you) you really can't go wrong with these ones.
Available at Call it Spring $109* (visit store for sale price)
